The Wolf and Truth return for the third and final part of our 2017 Fantasy Football Running Back preview; if you haven't heard Parts 1 and 2, don't miss RBs 1- 17 in Episode 8 and RBs 18-36 in Episode 9. In Part 3, we discuss "Penny Stocks" and the best strategies for late round drafting, before discussing which late round RBs will maximize your team's upside at minimal cost. We look at talent trapped in muddy depth charts (Hello, Joe Williams and Jamaal Charles), elite handcuffs (Derrick Henry, anyone?), and parts of explosive offenses (New England pass catching backs).

But first, we are thrilled to welcome in Simply_Shamus live, as we breakdown all the arousing news surrounding some breakout, "Penny Stock" WR candidates. Are we buying in on the hype surrounding Devante Parker, Breshad Perriman, and Josh Doctson? Plus, HOW many carries should we expect for Jay Ajayi?! We also discuss some turmoil over at The RSJ, drinking pickle juice, aerial pies, and The Tub Club taking over Walmart on Motorized Scooters.

The Wolf and Truth are back for Part II of our information-packed 2017 Running Back preview. After tackling Tiers 1-3 (RBs 1-17) in Part I, the boys dig into Tiers 4 + 5 (RBs 18 - 30), covering the remaining RB2s and flex rushers. Who is The Wolf nearly 20 spots higher on than the "expert" consensus? Why is CJ Anderson among the most overrated fantasy running backs in the game? What should we expect out of Detroit's Backfield? Don't miss the answers to all these questions and many more.
 
But first, Shamus runs us through a crucial Football Fantasy, where rookie RBs are threatening starters for valuable roles in Washington, Kansas City, and San Francisco. Find out which sleeper first-year runners need to be on your radar, and how high we'd draft them. Plus, we check in on the quagmire backfield in Seattle, take jabs at the horrendous MMQB Top 100, and even decide how much (and what) should you feed interns, anyways.
